  1. THIS is the flare? i've always heard about new scratches like the flare and the crab but most DJs i knew have been doing this since the 80s…we just didn't give it a name

  2. it's so hard for me to "un-teach" my fader hand not to stay closed! Having a hard time letting it stay open after a flare

  3. I guess my phone wants to list me as a different person. Ive ALMOST got it, I havent been this glued to the decks since beat matching. Ive got your guy's website bookmarked and am staying tuned! Thanks!!

  4. So far, this seems to be my cryptonite. I cant seem to get the timing down for the reverse. You make it look so easy. I HAVE to be able to conquer this, and its taking me a while. We'll see what happens.

  5. hey i know this may seem like a dumb question (specially coming from someone who DJs and mixes alot). I have been self teaching via youtube for scratching. does it matter if the fader is on a "cut" switch to do this scratch? does the flare sound better with a "mixing based" setting for scratching. (sorry if that doesnt make any sense)

    thanks again for the clearly understandable video

  6. are there limitations for what you can do if your fader isn't inverted? my mixer doesn't have a invert option. thanks!

  7. you really are doing a great service to mankind! these tutorials are amazing! I must say though I'm really struggling cutting out and cutting in the sound on the same vinyl stroke…temptation is always to move record forward or backwards with xfader…frustrating!!

  8. Huh…? Are those record players and mixers one big device? they look like it. Can you tell me whats in your set?

  9. THANKS..AND YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE HOW MUCH THESE HAVE GOT ME WHERE I'M AT TODAY..SO MUCH PROGRESS..WIT DIS YOUTUBE STUFF..SUCH AN DECREASED LEARNNG CURVE..AND FINALY SOME REAL PROGRESS..REALLY THO, THANKS..NOW BACK TO PRACTICING AND ENJOYING

  10. ON DA LEARNING CURVE WOULD IT BE BETTER TO LEARN AN INDIVIDUAL SCRATCH THEN COMBO THEM R START LEARNING WITH FULL PATTERNS OF DIFF SCRATCHES JUS AT OWN SLOW PACE?????

  11. I have a crossfader question. On the video it's closed (muted) when it's on a playing deck side (right from viewer point of view) and open on the oposite (further) side from the playing deck. On my Numark MixtracPro (midi controller) it's the other way around. I'm new to all this and it really caught my eye. What is the reason for that? Thanks

  12. Do you think that not having a crossfader curve would make a big difference in advanced scratches like the flare and boomerang? I'm currently using a Numark Mixdeck Express and I find it hard to do flares since you have to close the fader on the first part of it. The sound cuts out before I can hear the first step of the flare. Any advice?

  13. im having trouble going up to speed on the flare… i manage to do it slow but as soon as im going up in the speed (for example twice every 4 beats instead of once) im loosing the beat on my fader's hand… any advice?
